ZAP, N.D. - Police say a Zap man was intoxicated with alcohol and amphetamines when a vehicle he was driving crossed a median and crashed into another vehicle, killing the other driver, in September 2013.

Rocky Lynn Stein, 26, was charged with criminal vehicular homicide this week and could be sentenced to up to 20 years if he is found guilty of the felony offense.

Mercer County Sheriff's Deputy Mark Schmitt wrote in an affidavit that in the early morning of Sept. 15, 2013, he was called to the scene of a two-vehicle collision on North Dakota Highway 200A.

Schmitt arrived to find that Stein and Bismarck man Justin Schuette were being extricated from their respective vehicles. Both men were rushed to the hospital in Hazen, where Schuett later died.

Stein is scheduled to appear before Judge Bruce Haskell on Feb. 25.
